Sometimes, Wishing is Enough…

Posted by Les Becker on November 27, 2008 in J.O.B., Zenishness... |

My boss called me today. Asked me to come in to work to “have a little talk.” Scared the shit out of me. I LOVE my job. I want to keep my job. The only thing I don’t like about my job is my seeming inability to negotiate gracefully between day shifts and night shifts, […]

Posted by Les Becker on November 23, 2008 in Little Bits of Stupid, Photography |

Trojan MooseTaken July 7, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 Yeah, yeah, I know I said I *hate* these things not two posts ago, but…The Best Memes in Life Are Stolen. Elle said that, so it must be true. Stole this from Elle, who stole it from Angelika, who stole it from Why Are You Stalking […]

Guess What I Found on the “Dance Floor”…?

Posted by Les Becker on November 7, 2008 in Little Bits of Stupid, Radio Les |

Right, so I worked a night shift today (or last night), and have not yet slept, although I’m working through the night again tomorrow (or today [or tonight]). You’ll have to excuse me; my brains have had a stir. See above. It’s a lonely vigil, the night shift. There’s nobody else to dance with, for […]

Bloggers Say the Darn’dest Things…

Posted by Les Becker on October 8, 2008 in Blog-Family, Little Bits of Stupid |

Bloggers are pretty freaking funny. Lucky for me, ‘cuz I’ve been short of time of late, and recuperating after finishing The Waitress, the Whiskey & the Handcuffs. So I spent a little of what time was left over after “re-charging” (ahem…*) picking through my comments of last year. I’m paying homage to a bunch of […]

Bleed…

Posted by Les Becker on June 9, 2008 in Real Life |

I’m feeling a little raw, lately. There are a lot of changes being thrust upon me, and, as you all well know, I don’t deal with change ummm… much. I’m not having any luck becoming accustomed to the schedule at the new J.O.B., which kind of throws everything else out of whack as far as […]

Pink Fantasy…

Posted by Les Becker on April 29, 2008 in Real Life, Zenishness... |

Pink FantasyTaken February 22, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 I’m right impressed with myself over this picture. I seriously doubt I’ll get another shot even half this good for the rest of the year. I kind of hope I don’t – I’m really proud of this one. I want to blow it up to about […]

So, Is India the New World Power, Now?!

Posted by Les Becker on January 29, 2008 in J.O.B., School, Wasted Time... |

Lost in Translation? Okay, I’m having trouble following… I’m unemployed. The last thing I want is to have to go back to retail. Well, no, actually, the last thing I want is to have to go back to a call center – but retail is pretty freaking close behind… I just went back to school […]

About Temporariness…

Posted by Les Becker on October 19, 2007 in J.O.B., Photography, Real Life |

I still can’t sleep. I sleep once I fall asleep – it’s the “falling asleep” that seems to still be broken. Oddly, I’m not having any trouble getting up in the morning. I even eat breakfast. Because my kid makes it for me and spoon-feeds me before handing me a cup of coffee and running […]

Another Bridge Crossed…

Kyla came home from school yesterday with her book order: her very own copy of A Bridge to Terabithia. She’s read school copies several times already, and seen the movie in the theater three times now. She rushed in at 3:30, dropped the book in my hands, and rushed back out to her babysitting job. […]
